We have a 8 x 10 enclosed chicken coop with a hen house. The hens are around 3 months old. I am trying to teach them to go into the hen house to sleep by themselves. So far, I have to go out every nite and put them inside the hen house. Once I put them in they will stay until day light and come out on their own. Any suggestions on how to get them to roost inside the hen house once it is dark. I want them to get use to going inside the hen house so when they start laying, they will go inside to lay their eggs.
Am I expecting too much from the chicks???
